By Frederick W.P. Jago

Containing around 3,700 dialect words from both Cornish and English,, this glossary was published in 1882 by Frederick W. P. Jago (1817–92) in an effort to describe and preserve the dialect as it too declined and it is an invaluable record of a disappearing dialect and way of life.

Series Title: Studies in Theoretical Psycholinguistics
Description:

*Empirical evidence from a huge variety of languages including English,

usage-based approach.
